Nyonya Acar is pictured above. The sour and spicy taste of the acar is really appetising. This is a vegetable dish which takes a lot of preparation time. There's the job of cutting and slicing the vegetables and a whole lot of shallots need to be peeled. This dish is usually eaten with rice. It can also be eaten as an appetizer or a snack. Cucumber, carrots, pineapples, long beans, chillies and cabbages are the usual ingredients used.
